M22 Home Theater Speakers got a Reviewers Choice Award from SoundStage

Are you ready to be blown away by a speaker with sound so detailed you'll listen to every CD you own all over again? Critics and customers alike rave about the detailed and highly realistic sound of the M22, Axiom's best high-performance bookshelf speaker.

" . . .the M22s simply dazzled us, especially considering their price point. They managed to create a wide-open soundstage, while at the same time portraying a precise stereo image. So precise that at times, these loudspeakers almost seemed to disappear into the room. " -- Gene Della Sala,

You'll spend hours rediscovering favorite CDs, hearing subtle details other speakers muffle. The M22s deliver a soundstage of unprecedented depth and width, transporting you into the performance.

This isn't your average bookshelf speaker: the M22's unusual dual-woofer configuration mates with a 1-inch titanium tweeter to deliver all the power handling you need for demanding music and movies - up to 200 watts per channel! A connoisseur's bookshelf speaker.

Reviewers and customers love the M22 in both stereo music and home theater settings:

"Combine this speaker with a powered subwoofer in either a two-channel music system or a multichannel home-theater system and you have one heck of a full-range system for a previously unheard-of price." -- John Potis,

Its output and exceedingly natural sound outperform any speaker in its class:

". . . this experience has forced us to re-evaluate what a pair of $1,000 speakers should sound like, because these certainly sound as good as any $1,000/pair speakers we have ever listened to." -- Gene DellaSala,

The M22 is ideal for an average-sized room or larger. Its unique tall, slender profile is an elegant addition to any decor, blending beautifully into even the smallest room, whether wall-mounted or on shelves or stands.

These eye-catching speakers are 8 ohms and therefore easy to power with any amplifier, whether solid-state or tube. The asymmetrical anti-standing-wave tapered shape of the cabinet is highly resistant to resonances that can color other speakers' sound.

You don't have to take our word for it - audition these speakers in your own home. The M22s come with a 30-day in-home trial, a five-year warranty and free shipping.

Industry Reviews of the M22 Family

". . . the M22's had exquisite mid-range qualities . . . Diana [Krall]'s voice came through clearly, as if she weren't in the other room at all, but sitting right there with us."
-- Caleb Denison, Digital Trends


"...a beautifully tuned speaker with an enormously clean and musical midrange combined with a smooth, coherent and friendly treble."
-- John Potis,


"...this experience has forced us to re-evaluate what a pair of $1000 speakers should sound like, because these certainly sound as good as any $1000/pair speakers we have ever listened to."
-- Gene DellaSala,
"Nuance combined with muscular kick. This was hardly budget performance . . .they were a budget powerhouse with the right 0.1 support."
-- Glen Wagenknecht, Six Moons


"The M22ti's also impressed me with their refined response to high frequency material, like the breathy, sibilant background vocals, and the subtle definition of this recording's sweet artificial reverbs as they tail away."
-- Kevin Elliott,


"The M22tis delineated each and every note with excellent clarity, but without edginess, effectively featuring all of the delicate detail."
-- Tom Garcia, AudioRevolution


". . . The M22s were incredibly neutral throughout the midrange. Woodwinds were beautifully reproduced, with just the right amount of body and excellent retrieval of detail."
-- Tyler Stripko, Home Theater Hi Fi

Customer Comments about the M22 Family

Below are a few of the many reviews that our customers have been kind enough to send us.

I recently ordered a pair of M22tis and could not be more pleased. They look elegant, are well constructed, and, oh yeah, they sound incredible. It made me fall in love with 2-channel audio all over again. I recently ordered a VP 150 and am eagerly awaiting its arrival, and will soon continue to order until I've redone my bedroom theater with a full 7.1 of Axiom speakers. Keep up the great work! You have won yourselves a long time fan and customer.
-- Ben C., TN USA


The Speakers are Great. Thanks for the quick service. I did Audio for CBS TV for 35 years and I have to say your speakers are a great value.
-- Jim R., ME


I read the reviews, saw the awards, and liked the style but had never heard them. I thought I would give it a shot, but had not had a chance to put in my order. My wife bought the M22 bookshelf speakers for the heck of it (without me knowing), knowing I have wanted a new set of speakers. I dragged my wife along to listen to many options over the last couple of years, and I must say the M22 are the best bookshelf speakers we have heard! The first night I had them I did an A/B test with my Polks using Frank Sinatra's Christmas cd and I think it was the first time my wife commented on a speaker's performance. Thank you, Axiom, for making such a wonderful speaker at an outstanding price. They produce a wonderful, crisp, clear sound listening to metal, Sinatra, classical or movies. Keep up the good work, and thanks to my loving and gorgeous wife.
-- Charles D., MN

FYI, those little Axiom speakers are amazing. They are replacing my Martin Logan Aerius($2,500/pair) and I'm not sure I don't like the M22 better.
-- Bill T., OH


I just want to let you know that I am completely satisfied with my purchase. My M22s (and stands) were shipped quickly and arrived with no problems. I hooked these bad boys up and my jaw dropped! It sounded like Diana Krall was right there in my living room! Amazing! I only initially purchased the pair to trial the Axiom sound. I love the sound and, let's just say, I will soon have a complete AXIOM 7.1 system. Thanks Axiom!
-- Joe M., CA


Just got the speakers and I've found I'm falling in love with my music all over again. Hearing things I haven't heard before. The sound is very clean without being austere, warm without being wooly. 5-1/4 woofers give amazing bass reproduction, even without a subwoofer, which I may decide to add eventually. But since I don't listen as much to rock/pop as I do to jazz and orchestral, these have plenty of oomph with no distortion. And they look great too. I can't wait to go home and put on another disc!
-- Andy S., NY USA
